It's Labor Day Eve here, a Sunday and churches are all open. No keys required.

For Monday, on the other hand, the classic church key may come in handy... :D

A long time ago a bottle opener would be referred to as a church key, but only Cool 8) dudes could call it a church key. :lol:

How right you are John, I remember the days if you didn't have your church key, you didn't get that can of beer open! :lol:

Speaking of bottle openers,as a teenager I worked at a printing company loading massive paper rolls on the printer using a forklift.
This company had two huge Heidelberg (German made) printers, one was pretty old, the other from the 70's.
One day I saw something mounted to the machine by the control panel where the operator stands.
As I got closer it looked like a small bracket holding a bottle opener. I asked the guy running the printer and said "It is a bottle opener".
Not an ink bottle/can opener, it was a soda/beer bottle opener. It is possible there is a thinner or cleaner that used the same kind of bottle cap(?)

So I went and looked at the older printer and it had one too. Only the Germans would feel the need for a bottle opener while running a machine capable of swallowing a man. :lol:

I was a senior print buyer. I visited many printing plants saw lots of presses but never a bottle opener. The pressman kept in his pocket. Once the press is up to color and it’s running it can be kind of boringl. The only thing a press one has to do is to check a few sheets every now and then to make sure everything is OK. A bottle will certainly helps pass the time away. Especially on the overnight shift.
